What Are You Feeding Your Skin?

SkincareGraphic3JustIngredients

Have you ever picked up your skincare products and read the ingredients? How about actually researching what is specifically in them, to better understand what you are putting on your skin? I will be the first to admit I didn’t always do this. If a lotion said “Moisturizing” or “Nourishing” or “Natural”, I just thought it was. I never actually read and investigated what was in that product. I took these claims as honest and factual; not realizing I was essentially putting a whole lot of ingredients on my skin that were potentially carcinogenic and/or harmful.

Fast forward to present day, and I now scrutinize every single ingredient.

Tutorial: Learn How To Take Back Control Of What You See on Facebook

ComputerUpdates2

When I get onto Facebook, however sporadic it may be, I look forward to seeing the updates of my friends, as well as those of the business pages I have “liked”. But with all of the new Facebook changes, have you noticed you are seeing less and less of the status updates to the business pages you’ve “liked”?

I know there are all kinds of factors that go into which Facebook pages will or won’t show up in my news feed but, as simple as it may seem, I just want to see any and all updates to the pages I have have selected to “like”. Why else would I “like” a page if I wasn’t actually interested in seeing updates etc, right? Add to this, the fact that most business pages are now being forced to pay for each post if they want their entire audience to see it; making it even more unlikely it will end up in my news feed. And I will say, I don’t always have time to comment on each post that I would like too, and this also may play a part in how much (or how little) I see of my favorite pages.

NEW at icedpink.com – Create Your Own Sets, NEW Packaging and NEW Products~!

I’ve never sold sets in the Iced pinK Etsy Store before, because each of us have different taste in earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. And you shouldn’t have to buy a set, with a piece that you may not use. So, it got me to thinking. And then I began creating lots of pieces in different sizes and styles and colors, that coordinate!  When I listed them in the Iced pinK Etsy store, each listing includes pieces that match or coordinate – to create a set unique for you! And the “Create Your Set” was born! I’m excited to bring you, yet another form of customization to your accessory wardrobe! Most of the necklaces and/or bracelets allow for you to customize your length, and now you can create your own sets!
